You're probably right. The girl was Vegan and Im sure they make the videos look worse but if any of these farms are half as bad as the other videos on this girls page it would still be terrible

I'm from Maine, I've cooked a lot of lobster, and IME if you do put them into hot water, they die instantly, but how most ppl I know do it is that they put them in with cold water and that way they slowly heat up and don't know the difference, just die.(frogs will do the same) there is a video on YouTube of my dad, cousin and I putting lobster "to sleep" that shows how close to their shells their neural system is. It can be found under the title of "sweet lobster dreams" and was filmed in cape cod a few summers ago.I also do eat lobster, but that's cause I don't like it. I've also seen some huge ones. As you can see below. This things claw was the size of my shoe, and it was as long as a dishwasher.

This person is well-known for being overdramatic about her arguments on animal rights. I'm sure most if not all US restaurants have policies about putting the animals in boiling water, not heating it up slowly. Instant death. Very little pain involved.

Being from Newfoundland Canada I have eaten my fiar share of lobster, I have never cooked them but I remember when my mom cooked them there was very little water in the pot 2" maybe and the lobsters were more steamed rather than boiled. They never had much suffering bc they only moved around in the pot for a few seconds before dying. I think this story of a friends friend chef(or whatever) is bogus!

I enjoy eating seafood and meat and i believe being human we are meant to eat meat/animals.

There is a human way to euthanize animals for consumption and there is an inhumane way, it's so sad when you hear stories of the inhumane.

The words "extremist vegetarian" made me giggle.
And we think the lobster dies instantly but how can we truly know what its like? Or if and on what level the brain is still working at and for how long? IMO we can only speculate without being a lobster ourselves.

And i think extremist overly dramatic vegans and vegetarians are really not helping their cause because people discount them as crazy.
And hey, IMO some are.

Not to say vegans and vegetarians are crazy, just stuff like PETA, whale wars, the people that vandalized my dads friends hummer bc it was polluting the earth, etc.
